A survey is being conducted this week of educators in Michigan to help guide policy decisions. The online educator survey is being fielded by Launch Michigan, a diverse alliance of education, labor, business and philanthropic groups.MEA is a partner in Launch Michigan, representing the interests of school employees in the coalition.
MEA members should have received an email on Monday from Launch Michigan with an invitation to take the survey. MEA is encouraging all K-12 school employees to participate and make their voices heard about what is needed on the front-lines of public education to help every student succeed.
“We owe it to our students and our professional colleagues to take part in a survey like this,” said MEA President Paula Herbart, one of Launch Michigan’s co-chairs. “For years, educators have wished for policymakers to ask them – the experts – what’s needed to help students succeed. Launch Michigan is asking those questions, and I’m hoping every Michigan educator shares his or her views.”
The survey will take about 15-20 minutes to complete – please take time by this Sunday, Feb. 10, to make your voice heard.
Survey responses – which are confidential – will be used by Launch Michigan to guide a set of policy recommendations it intends to propose to the Governor and state Legislature.
